Mari Copon

Mari Copon, Pastry Chef at Well Seasoned, a gourmet food store in Langley, BC=Mari’s happy place has always been in the kitchen. Food and cooking is her passion. She’s kinda the jack of all trades and has been Well Seasoned for over a decade. She’s a swinger and swings both ways between savoury and pastry. She’s worked at other kitchens but there’s nothing like coming back home to the WS kitchen and crew.

Michele Vanderzwan, Staff at Well Seasoned, a gourmet food store in Langley, BC

As a constant victim of unsolicited house guests, Michele is always on the lookout for new recipe and entertainment ideas. Her dream of owning a hobby farm came true a few years ago and she takes pride in serving homegrown when she can. The need for new and interesting meal ideas brought her to Well Seasoned. The overwhelming variety of gourmet food products and supplies intrigued the caterer in her even further. She had to be a part of this place! Michele became a regular attending a multitude of classes which lead her to become a kitchen assistant to so many local and celebrity chefs, and a PNWBA judge. She enjoys getting to share recipes and inspirations with other like minded foodies.
